into the conversation we aired today with president obama. he sat down with nbc's savannah guthrie, who's here with us in the studio tonight. >> brian, good evening to you. we spoke with the president over the weekend in milwaukee. i asked him as you mentioned about the teachers strike in chicago which had him walking a fine line in a battle between two of his allies, his former chief of staff recall emanual and the teachers unions he counts on for support. there was a leading advocate that shows this that the teachers unions are no longer -- >> i see all across the country, people want results. and i'm a strong believer that the way you get results is to get everybody involved. so it starts at home, parents have to parent and turn off the tv and video and make sure your kids are doing their home work. it means teachers striving for excellence in the classroom. it was very important for mayor emanuel to explain let's step up our game and it's porptd for the teachers unions to say let's make sure we're not blaming the teachers for all the wrongs out there. >> romney said he can't talk up reform while i
to obama. >> hoosiers have a choice. continue down the path of donnelly and obama. >> joining me tonight is joe donnelly, the congressman from indiana who is challenging the tea party candidate. good to have you with us tonight. you're going up against the candidate who really underscores what washington has been for the last couple years. does that play in your favor? >> yeah, he has been incredibly reckless, ed. one statement after another. hoosiers are not buying his extreme agenda. if you want to see the extremes to where he's gone, this is after the primary, he said lugar betrayed conservatives. lugar is an indiana hero. he worked nonstop to make the world safer by reducing nuclear weapons. we have seen just the comments that you said about bipartisanship. richard has said medicare is unconstitutional, that social security is unconstitutional. he has said that employer health cares don't have to cover health care covers. it's been one after another. we have seen in the last few weeks richard has disappeared. and they are hoping to through the super pacs buy the senate seat. >> do yo
's up 4. so -- and we see what the actual results are. obama is now beating mitt romney. he was down. ohio polling. obama was down 8 points among people 65 and older. today he is up 1. i think that's -- and he writes persuasively that republicans, again, get smoking what they were dealing thinking that their desire to see the end of medicare, to see the entitlement state shrunk was a political message broadly decided to double down on it and put paul ryan on the ticket and went right after it. these are the results. >> i think much like playing the notorious big, you are spot on. i look at the same interges. the only thing that has changed demonstrably is seniors. seniors have been so resistant to barack obama. they've been the one constituency that had not warmed up to him at all and in 2010 they were a big reason why that wave washed up against democrats. now you actually see in iowa, in ohio in these swing states seniors moving back for one reason, medicare. the only thing special about paul ryan was this budget that he put forth that wants to voucher rise medicare. by putting him
president obama. but mitt isn't having it, trying to get ohio voters to the right by focusing on the economy. >> with incomes going down, every year, every year going down, down, down. prices of electricity up and health insurance up and the cost of gasoline, having doubled, these are tough times. even for families with jobs. i know what it takes to get this economy going again. cheryl: so what would a tax plan under a romney/ryan administration look like? rich edson breaks it down for us. rich? >> reporter: well, cheryl, democrats call it a giveaway to the rich at the expense of the middle class. republicans say they're wrong, and this morning governor romney defended his tax plan. >> by the way, don't be expecting a huge cut in taxes because i'm also going to lower deductions and exemptions. by bringing rates down, we'll be able to let small businesses keep more of their money to hire more people. >> in the end the details are really up to congress. romney's proposed cutting every tax rate by 20%. to insure the treasury department takes in about the same amount of money under a new system,
. and the reason, of course, that the obama campaign is working so hard to tamp down expectations, norah and charlie, is that they like the trajectory of the race right now. they don't want to do anything to change it. >> no doubt. thank you. both sides are trying to lower expectations for the debate because any misstep has the potential to derail a campaign. both candidates have both good and bad moments from their debate history. >> john, you're absolutely right that presidents have to be prudent in what they say, but coming from you, in the past, have threatened extinction for north korea and sang songs about bombing iran. i don't know how credible that is. >> he's very likable. i agree with that. i don't think i'm that bad. >> you're likable enough, hillary. [ laughter ] >> i appreciate that. >> mr. speaker, i know that sounds like an enormous revelation, but have you checked your own investments? you also have investments from your own mutual funds that invest in fannie mae and freddie mac. rick, i'll tell you what, 10,000 bucks? $10,000 bet? >> i'm not in the betting business -- >>
the full hour at ten o'clock. president obama continues to double down on green energy. smith electric received 32 million dollars of taxpayer grants to build a battery powered vehicle factory in kansas city. here is president obama visiting that plant in 2010. >> one of those decisions was to provide critical funding to promising innovative businesses like smith electric vehicles. and because we did, there's a thriving enterprise here instead of an empty, darkened warehouse. because of the grant that went to this company, we can hear the sounds of machines humming and people doing their work instead of just the ghostly silence of an emptied out building and the memory of workers who were laid off a long time ago. stuart: hold on, hold your horses. the president could have another solyndra on his hands. smith electric promised to make 620 trucks this year. it then cut the estimate to 380 and in june made only 79. and after weak investor demand the company canceled its 125 million dollar ipo, gone, cancelled and now, mitt romney has a new ad attacking the administration's green energy a
not just to president obama but democrats up and down the ticket. he is in demand from all quarters of the country. and i just hope and pray that bill clinton will not only get out there every day over the next 40 some odd days, but he's there to help president obama and vice president biden with the debate preps. because i agree with erick, the debates are going to be crucial this election season. >> out on the campaign trail, erick, paul ryan, the republican vice presidential nominee, he's making some serious accusations against joe biden. but joe biden is responding. listen to what joe biden said today. >> for the previous eight years all the policies that congressman ryan voted for and governor romney said he supported, all those policies in a mere eight years, they doubled the national debt. they doubled the national debt from what they inherited in 2001. >> he's right on that because the debt was about $5 trillion when president bush took office, more than $10 trillion when he left office. i think he's referring to the two tax cuts that weren't paid for, the precipitation drug
this coalition and get ready for this and make everyone believe it. how do we do that if president obama does not sit down and meet with netanyahu after this dramatic speech? netanyahu lies out his position, he says mutually assured destruction doesn't work, he says economic sanctions are not working. how do you achieve the coalition that general clark is talking about if the two of those guys aren't sitting down? >> i think they're meeting through surrogates and netanyahu did say that there is coordination between the militaries. i'm hoping that it will be so clear and unambiguous that the iranians will finally get it and back down, but we have to be prepared for the alternative that they don't and we have to be prepared to pull the trirg because the only thing worse than attacking iran is let them have the bomb. >> we'll left it there. thank you very much, gentlemen. i appreciate it. coming up on kudlow, the market was up today despite some stalled economic signs that the u.s. still could be on the edge of a recession. i'll show you those signs. we will translate what it means for your port
down to the fundamentals and if people are feeling better about the economy. barack obama is going to win. where mitt romney has failed so far is to convince people who are unhappy with the economy that he he would be any better. >> bill: all right. now, the media doctor sabato, i don't think there? i question they want barack obama to win. they being the national media. and if you did a real clear politics consensus on the media, it would be like 75-25 we want obama to win. a lot of that is the reportage reflects that, maybe subconsciously maybe as morris says not subconsciously do it on purpose. when people hear it on in the car, driving to work, this, that, and the other thing that the president is polling ahead, that means something, does it not? >> well, yes and no. now, look, bill, there is a lot of research on this. and people are not empty vessels into which the media can pour opinions. again, that's not just my opinion. that's a lot of research behind it. we all have perceptual screens and we screen out things with which we disagree. you know, when people listen to media r
in this campaign. he went on the view for the same reason he's done letterman, leno, sat down with "people" magazine, and mitt romney has done plenty of these things too. this is not a barack obama or mitt romney thing. >> i'm just asking about the timing. >> what they're trying do is reach independent voters who haven't made their mind up yet and they think they may get them and female voters, get them through "the view." the timing makes it look more like he is focused on campaigning first and foremost than being president first and foremost and has opened him up to considerable criticism from republicans about, you know, how do you have it time on your schedule to do a midday talk show and to not sit down with some of these people. i just return to jeff's point, it's because he understands that any meetings here are fraught with the fact that we are exactly six weeks away from a very contentious election and he doesn't want to go down that road. you can debate whether that's the right or wrong thing for the president to do but it is the political thing that is being done currently. >> q
the two candidates barack obama is going to win. >> mitt romney's numbers are down in key swing states. and let me play for you what was said yesterday by former -- by ohio governor john kay sick about those polls. >> in these polls don't even pay attention to them. the numbers you just cited are numbers i didn't pay attention to on my own numbers because it depends when you ask, it defends how you ask, it depends what the sample is. look, i think this is very close out here. >> governor, three polls in swing states in just a couple of days. they all show the movement 2re7 trending away from mitt romney, toward barack obama. is there something an internal polling in the romney that's telling them something different, are they kidding themselves? >> well, i think that's internal to the romney campaign, i don't even know those numbers but i can tell you the two ads we just saw are engaging on the right topic for the american t voters. a business round-table last week had a meeting. our ceo said it privately and then publicly yesterday, we released a big drop, third sharpest drop in expec
they can't -- it's -- the margs inhese stasre s t they need both obama to go down as they're going up. >> all right, mike. and apparently you've been deputized by "sports illustrated." you're here to reveal the new cover of "sports illustrated." >> what? >> there's a lot of goo news, good buzz inside the beltway. it's on the cover of "sports illustrated" this week. they're calling washington/baltimore america's unlikely new sports capital. seth davis, lanny son is writing in "sports illustrated" abo the beltway as the new spos surpower. we have the washington nationals tied with the reds for the best team in baseball. we have great hope for the redskins with this quarterback, rg3 which "spos illustrated" i hope he's better than that. >> yeah. it's definitely a moment. i can tell you as a yankee fan, the orioles are frightening at this point. >> aren't they something? >>ike allen, thanks so much. >> have a good week. >> a point of personal privile here. >> please. >> i want to hear about one story today and one story only. and i want to know what's going on in kansas. mika, do we have
strategist concedes president obama is ahead as september winds down and early voting opens. >> anybody that knows football the fourth quarter is when most of the action appears so october will be big and if romney has a good start to the month, we'll be fine. >> reporter: he warns against making too much of the early rush. >> in 2010 democrats had an edge in early voting as well. i can't tell you exactly what the edge was but it was a significant edge and republicans still swept the state. it is the difference of strategy, you put your money in the last three weeks or the early voting. >> reporter: the gop sent the first early vote mailing just this week. >> can mitt romney and paul ryan count on your support this november election? excellent. and would you be interested in voting early this election? >> reporter: karen is credited with making the iowa gop's 1 millionth voter call this cycle. >> i am calling with a brief three-question survey about issue that is matter to iowa. >> reporter: she is doing her part as republicans play early voter catch up. >> we're working hard and rollin
the united nations -- >> a crude and disgusting video -- >> president obama called the violence that left a u.s. ambassador and three other americans dead and attack on america. >> there should be no doubt that we will be relentless in tracking down the killers and bringing them to justice. >> while the speech was liver before foreign leaders, it was also aimed at american voters. >> the fear for obama politically is that america sees him as weak, which is why he gives more of a hard line, firm stance at the united nations today. >> met romney addressed the clinton global initiative, unveiling a new approach to foreign aid that target barriers to investment and trade in developing nations. >> in exchange for removing barriers and opening markets to u.s. investment and trade, developing nations will receive u.s. assistance packages. >> he joked about sharing the stage with a political adversary. >> if there is one thing we have learned in this election season, it's that a few words from bill clinton can do a man a lot of dead. >> the appearance may indeed help romney. >> it could be a boost if
in new york, president obama is not meeting with any of them. instead sitting down with barbara walters and whoopi goldberg and last week on david letterman. do these appearances make him look presidential or just simply help with young voters? good question. we will ask rn krchc chairman r priebus if it's working for the president and if romney should be doing the same copying with young people. what should he do: teachers strike, are unions standing in the the way of progress of our public schools? we'll ask the president of a charter school about that. and a major debacle at the end of the monday night football game, the replacement officials make the wrong call. after this, is it time for them to tell them to hit the road? gretchen and charles are next. >> i've got one issue with democrats and republicans seem to agree. it's time to bring the refs back to the nfl. this was the last straw. >> the final play, it's a loft to the end zone, it's caught by tate, with jennings simultaneously, who has it? who did they give it to? >> confusion over will it should be an interception or a tou
down. >> today president obama and mitt romney will speak at a clinton global initiative in new york, then it's back to the campaign trail for both candidates. sunny, john, back to you. >> i thought it was fascinating about the interview was that the ladies suggested michelle obama would be a great public officer. i agree. >> she said, you know, i don't have the patience for something look that. >> she certainly knows herself. >> she certainly knows herself. her husband knows her as well. he pointed that out. >> she was not offended in the least. she said "yep, i don't have the patience." you never know, never say never, right. >> that's true. and he says he certainly intends to stay in the white house for the next four years, but he would like to work with children after his presidency. i thought that was fascinating. >> after all the high pressure situation he's faced. good for him. wouldn't that be a nice change of pace. >>> secretary of state hillary clinton in new york for the u.n. general assembly speaking about the anti-american uprisings in the middle east. secretary clinton
. at a rally in las vegas, president obama tried to manage the speculations. >> i know the media is speculating who is going to have the best zinger. i don't know about that. governor romney, he's a good debater. >> reporter: as both hunker down for intense practice, the polls show americans overwhelming with the election and the president lose. in a new abc news/"washington post" poll out this morning, 63% of registered voters expect president obama to win the election. that's his biggest lead so far when it comes to expectations. but looking at like hi supporters, the race is much closer. president obama leads mitt romney by two points. republican governor chris christie predicted romney could close the gap with president obama after a strong showing on wednesday's debate. >> i'm absolutely confident when we get to thursday morning, george. >> reporter: president obama is keeping his answers short and concise. >> the president has got to be president. this is the guy that killed osama bin laden. i think he can stand up to mitt romney but he's got to relax. >> mitt romney keeps hammering presi
-point in florid the advantage for president obama. and i think a large part of the reason is due to the medicare and social security issue. but i really think it comes down to something that carl was just talkg about. this tape that was done of candidate romn when he was at thed-er w extremely revealing and now has become terribly devastating to the romney campaign. and what it shows is, i think, a callousness and an attitude toward 47% of the people that we haven't seen in a candidate befo. what candidateal lehat saat y know, i can't worry about those people and i'm not going to be able to change them and have them have personal responsibility. i mean, it's absolutely stunning to hear those kinds of candid remarks from somebody who wants to be president of the entire country. >> there's anoth problem with nting at.ks that the govnor is also, it's too bad there's not somebody from the romney camp to join us, people clubbing to guy today here on the show. but at the same time, those comments reflect an ignorance about america at is absolutely stunning. ac of knowledge that i've never seen in a pr
chimed in. romney is down eight points against obama in ohio in the latest "washington post" poll. in that is bad news because of the fact that no republican candidate has ever taken the white house without care rig the state. but team romney still thinks they are within the margin of error. they are also hoping that ryan can save the ticket. as for president obama, he is dolling out plenty of money in ohio. this is something we see every four years as presidential candidates pay particular at attention to certain swing states. in this case it's president obama with ohio. ohio took home four time as much energy as any other state from the clen energy tax credit and it has the largest loan in the history of the u.s. small business administration. we are back with more bill press live at the break. and as always we are in chat at current.com/billpress. all of the pieces? >>tv and radio talk show host stephanie miller rounds out current's morning news block. >>you're welcome current tv audience for the visual candy. >>sharp tongue, quick whit and >>you just think th

the expectations game. tamping down a little bit. let me bring back maria cardona and amy holmes. amy, as you see it, who's got the advantage, president obama who's done so many, or mitt romney who frankly had to do it just to get the nomination? >> exactly. well, the president obviously has the incumbent advantage and he's been president the last four years and dealt with these issues on the front lines at 1600 pennsylvania avenue. as you mentioned, mitt romney as the gop nominee, he had to go through quite a gauntlet. i'm not sure that one person has the edge over the other. i think the question will be, you know, who gets off the best line and who's able to address the voters' concerns most directly and most pervasively. >> maria, same question. who do you think has the edge? a lot of people have been saying, mitt, where are the details? who do you think that is advantage right now? >> well, it's interesting, because going into it on issues and substance, i think that president obama has the advantage, because he's the one who has been a lot more clear and has offered a lot more specifics on w
, the obama administration. with all of that said, his speech boiled down to, there's an imminent threat. he compared it to the holocaust well,nd hels tt action must be taken within the next year it sounds. >> yeah. it will be interesting to see in the text day or two how the obama administration responds. we knew this red line speech was comi. wenew that the obama administration and netanyahu ecallyidee necessarily on the future actions to take. it's been abundantly clear obama has not appreciated having his hand forced by netanyahu. netanyahu has absolutely realized that this is an election season, has been accused probably rightly so of putingertaints u.s. election system to what he perceives to be his benefit. now that we know what the netanyahu red line is, it will be interesting to se how the obama admistration responds, whether or not it agrees. i have a sense that they will not appreciate having been is ?ed into y aee wh do you not agree? it's interesting to see what the white house does. >> thank you very much, jim. it's a pleasure to have your analysis. thank you. >>> we have more
to president obama because mittens says that this early stage in the game, polls go up and polls go down. well, only two things wrong with that. it is not early anymore mitt. and two, all your polls are going down, down, down! as we'll see together here in the next hour. but first, we start out by getting the latest. today's current news update. lisa ferguson in los angeles. hi lisa. >> hey bill, good morning everyone. president obama is launching a two-minute long television ad. he is speaking directly to the camera and he tells americans if he could sit down at their kitchen table here's what he would say. >> obama: what's my plan. first we create a million new manufacturing jobs and help businesses double their exports. give tax breaks to companies that invest in america. not the to ship jobs overseas. >> other parts of the president's plan include cutting oil imports in half, training new teachers and workers bringing down student loans and reducing the deficit. that ad is airing in seven key states. over the next
definitely see and credibly target. i believe that faced with a clear red line iran will back down. this will give more time for sanctions and diplomacy to convince iran to dismantle its nuclear weapons program altogether. two days ago from this podium, president obama reiterated that the threat of a nuclear-armed iran cannot be contained. i very much appreciate the president's position, as does everyone in my country. we share the goal of stopping iran's nuclear weapons program. this goal unites the people of israel, it unites americans, democrats and republicans alike, and it is shared by important leaders throughout the world. what i have said today will help ensure that this common goal is achieved. le israel is in discussions with the united states over this issue, and i'm confident we can chart a path forward together. ladies and gentlemen, the clash between it need not be a clash between progress and tradition. the traditions of the jewish people go back thousands of years. they're the source of our collective values, the foundations of our national strength. at the same tim
the kind of times that i think world leaders would be eager to sit down with president obama, not just have a phone call but to sit across the table to look into his eyes, to try to get a better understanding of where the united states is going to be. i think the president needs to be having those meetings and to be communicating those things directly in such a way that you can't do either over the phone or in group sessions or in speeches or in interviews on the view. martha: i mean, that's the glaring question, steve. why would he not? i mean it's an opportunity to look presidential in a time of turmoil. why would he not want to take advantage of that opportunity sth. >> wel opportunity? >> there is an opportunity provided in new york times where you have a obama official quoted anonymously saying in this campaign season the president can't afford to take the time to be doing a series of these meetings. this is a paraphrase rather than a direct quotation was something like if he takes a meeting with one of these world leaders he has to take a meeting with ten. and i think it was just the
down nearly half of the nation's voters as dead beats. 54% of registered voters have an unfavorable view of comments while 32% viewed them as favorable. and now he addressed the voters directly. >> romney: president obama and i both care about poor and middle class families. the difference is my policies will make things better for them. >> eliot: romney even praised his massachusetts health care program, romney told nbc news, and i quote . . . one can only imagine what would have hand if romney had embraced his health care plan at the start of this raisin stead of running away from it. according to the "new york times" cbs news poll of three swing states the president leads his challenger by 12 points. mr. obama is out in front in florida by nine points, and in ohio, president obama is up by ten points. but some republicans seem to have trouble accepting the polls as valid. >> i trust our numbers, and that's what we're basing our decisions off of. >> eliot: good luck with that. in ohio romney accepted the endorsement of golf legend jack nicolaus. >> romney: it
cast, that is our dollars and cents. >>neil: thank you very much. incredible. president obama speaking out against the violence but unlike last year when he sat down with no fewer than 12 leaders to hammer out a variety important issues, this time he had in time for one-on-one talks but for this one. >> he had a few minutes in his schedule. ai told folks i'm just supposed to be eye candy if you are watching. >>neil: something says that my guest is not impressed with eye candy or with the president popping up on "the view," and not performing more urgent role. >>guest: we have a lot going on in the middle east that is not in our favor. it seems appropriate our president would have at least met with prime minister binyamin netanyahu to show everyone in the world that israel is our number one ally throughout that area and we are dedicated to supporting him. meet with president morsi from egypt and talk about what happened there. maybe meet with the president from libya. to not meet with anyone but the people on "the view" sends a emergency it is more about politics. >>neil: i don't know t
the world. time is of the essence. i made it clear we don't have much time left. president obama echoed that sentiment but ban ki-moon said to also tone it down this year. >> the rhetoric is very high and you may want to give a statesman-like speech. >> president obama gave a siring defense speech. tell us about that. t >> the anti-american protests were raging across the middle east as a result. so what president obama did was, listen, the united states definitely approve of the video. but when we are talking about dma acy in the region, this is a part of that. >> the strongest weapon against hateful speech is not repression. it is more speech. the voices of tolerance that rally against bigotry and bl blasphemy. >> some of the leaders say we need to have some international law banning blasphemy and the anti-religious rhetoric. not just in their own countries where it exists but around the world. listen to the president, hamid karzai, talking about this subject. >> such acts cannot be called freedom of speech or explex. equally, they cannot give reason for the protests to be used inside
administration was projecting toward his demands that the menendez demands, the obama administration response. that was a strange moment today. >> i think he made a very important point that the economic sanctions have not worked to slow down the neck their weapons program. not affecting the nuclear program which means that the next at by their is a rocket center somebody takes the military action. lou: is there some strange way of benefit to this public discussion of policy that would, one seriously your estimate seems, suggest they constrain their public comment, the secretive rather than discuss time lines, red lines, and moments for attack? >> he has now made his point. i think he would be best advised to stop further public discussion. we passed the real redlines years ago. lou: ambassador john bolton. always good to have you here. >> thank you. lou: much more on the president's policy later with the "a-team." it the naacp has a problem. they say are election laws are racially discriminatory. they're going to the united nations. he has a better idea. just separate the races. we are joine
